The FP7 project FramingNano supported a multi stakeholder dialogue on nanosciences and nanotechnologies regulation and governance among the scientific, institutional, industrial communities and the broad public. It aimed to articulate consensus and absence of consensus between the various stakeholders, sustain a European debate between them, and foster the development of a shared frame of knowledge, objectives and actions to define constructive and practicable regulatory solutions toward the responsible development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies.
This action has led to a proposed governance plan designing a deliberative process for the responsible development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies at European level and beyond, including recommendations for future research, policy actions, and co-operative research processes. The project ended in 2010.
